Okay, ready to add six or so Bruins to the media guide.
The draft is just starting, though, so here is some audio stuff from yesterday: Peter Chiarelli after Drafting Colborne Scott Bradley talks about Joe Colborne Boston's Joe Colborne talks about his day
And how about some pictures:
|2008 NHL Entry Draft: Day 1 |
Boston has selected Maxime Sauve with their second pick.

Participated in the 2007 Canada Winter Games as a member of Team Quebec, posting three points in the tournament (2-1-3).

Boston selected Michael Hutchinson
From his profile: "Led the Colts to a first round playoff upset of the Brampton Battalion before losing to the eventual Eastern Conference champions, Belleville, in the second round.

The Bruins traded up and swapped their picks at 107 and 137 for the 97th pick (from Columbus). They then chose Jamie Arniel

The Bruins just selected Nicholas Tremblay.
From his profile on cjahl.com: "Nicholas Tremblay had a tremendous season with the Smiths Falls Bears of the CJHL. His 51 goals, 59 assists, and 110 Points were enough to lead his team and the entire league in scoring. The centreman collected an impressive 12 power play goals, 19 power play assists, and 6 game winning goals."

Well, it's over. And the Bruins last pick is Mark Goggin
Choate Rosemary Hall head coach Pat Dennehy says:
"Mark is the ultimate competitor who wants to be on the ice when the game is on the line. He works tirelessly year round to improve his game. Simply put, Mark wants to be a hockey player. He is both a student of the game and a leader – his teammates both look up to him and learn from him. He is possessed with great hands and has a wonderful hockey sense as well as a flare for the dramatic."

The Bruins contingent is back at the hotel getting some rest before a big meal and an early flight. However, how about some food for thought from day two of the draft?
- Maxime Sauve's cousin Philippe played briefly in the Bruins organization in 2006-07, including 2 relief appearances in Boston (no decisions).
- His father Jean-Francois and uncle Bob also played in the NHL but had no ties to the Bruins.
- Jean-Francois Sauve played alongside Claude Julien while with the Quebec Nordiques.
- Jamie Arniel's uncle Scott played 29 games in Boston in the 1991-92 season.
- Joe Colborne is going to the University of Denver in the Fall - their Senior Associate Athletic Director is Ron Grahame, who played in goal for Boston in 1977-78.
- Perhaps more famously, Grahame was traded to Los Angeles for the 1979 first round draft pick that became Ray Bourque.
Mark your schedules -- we will have an interactive chat with Joe Colborne on Wednesday, June 25th at 2:00 p.m. Don't miss this chance to chat with the B's first pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
